Crank Brothers Cobalt 3 29" Mountain Wheelset
The Crank Brothers Cobalt 3 29" mountain wheels are an elite-level aluminum wheelset that's perfect for high performance cross country and trail riding. These wheels are stunning both visually and on the trails due to Crank Brothers' unique design that's based on principles of strength, stiffness, and acceleration - exactly what the discerning, demanding mountain biker seeks out. The Cobalt 3 wheels feature Twinpair spoke technology which pairs 2 sets of 12 spokes (so 24 spokes/wheel front and rear) to maximize strength and stiffness. They're incredibly user-friendly, too, as there's only one spoke length for all the spokes plus the spokes can be replaced without removing the tire. The 6061-T6 anodized aluminum rims are the epitome of strength and light weight, and since they don't have any holes rim strips aren't necessary and tubeless conversion is very straightforward. The Cobalt 6061-T6 hubs are legendary performers renowned for strength, reliability, plus smooth-rolling performance thanks to sealed cartridge bearings.
  • 6061-T6 shot peened anodized rims with smooth weld joints are durable, strong, and lightweight
  • Rims are hole-less so no rim tape is required (saves weight and makes tubeless conversion a simple process)
  • Twinpair paired-spoke technology features 24 spokes front/rear using the strongest shape in construction, the triangle, to maximize strength and stiffness
  • Twinpair design uses a single spoke length plus the spokes are replaceable without removing the tire
  • Butted stainless spokes and 7075-T6 aluminum spoke nipples help keep the weight low
  • Cobalt 6061-T6 alloy hubs are lightweight and strong
  • Sealed cartridge bearings keep mud and debris out
  • 6-bolt disc rotor compatible
  • Set up for 15mm thru-axle front, 12x142mm thru-axle rear (includes adapters for 9x100mm front and 10x135mm rear quick release)
  • 3-pawl freehub body is quick to engage and super-durable
  • Weight: 1,735 grams/pair

    Comments about Crank Bros. Crank Brothers Cobalt 3 29" Mountain Wheelset:

    I have a 2011 Giant Anthem X29er I have been gradually upgrading as my components wear out. I've upgraded or replaced literally everything but the shock and fork (both get regular service). I finally got around to the wheels. The Cobalt 3s have been the single best upgrade I have done. They spin up very fast, they climb great, and they feel much lighter than the P-XC29 2s that came with the bike. I've only had them a few weeks, and I'm hoping they last!!
